Lucas Trofimiuk

Lucas’s love for fitness started in his teenage years driven by one thing – ego. This taught Lucas a lot about what NOT to do, and overcoming these boundaries helped shape Lucas into the trainer he is today.

 Lucas is always excited to learn something new on how to train, and having spent years experimenting with different methods; he has enjoyed the benefits of rapid strength development and changes in his size & body composition.

 Training entirely with body weight using blends of calisthenics, pilates and yoga, the biggest lesson Lucas has learned is that there is no single method that is THE BEST; they’re all great.

 Lucas still utilises all of these disciplines in his own training and applies them to his clients to create truly unique and challenging programs.

 Lucas believes as a trainer that he is not just there to count your reps but to be your 24/7 motivator, BS-checker and cheerleader. Your health is his priority.
